BBC Books have unveiled details of their latest publication, the Doctor Who: Dalek Combat Training Manual, which is due out early next year

The Daleks are the most evil creatures ever created – genetically engineered mutants encased in a machine that is optimised to kill. They hate all other life forms and will stop at nothing to destroy those who stand in their way – their single-minded imperative? To become the dominant species in the universe.

Following the publication of their TARDIS Type 40 Instruction Manual back in 2018, BBC Books have announced the publication of another informative guide from the Doctor Who universe. Due for release in February 2021, the Dalek Combat Training Manual has been described as an all-new and comprehensive user’s guide to the Daleks. It will come complete with technical information and drawings, as well as case histories and more.

This latest publication from BBC Books collates intelligence gathered by Time Lords over centuries of raging wars through time and space. They have described the book as invaluable to anyone engaging the Daleks in battle, as it offers an in-depth guide to their construction, their strategies, and how they can be defeated.

Readers will be able to discover diagrams of Dalek spacecraft, insights into the many Dalek factions, a history of the Time War, plus a detailed analysis of their creator, Davros, and much more.

The Dalek Combat Training Manual features contributions from several familiar names from the world of Doctor Who. These include the authors of BBC Books’ TARDIS Type 40 Instruction Manual, Richard Atkinson and Mike Tucker, as well as digital artist Gavin Rymill. Since 2006, Rymill has contributed to Doctor Who DVD cover artwork and supplied Doctor Who Magazine covers. He has also been supplying sculpts for Hero Collector‘s Doctor Who Figurine collection since 2013.

Doctor Who: Dalek Combat Training Manual is due for publication by BBC Books on 18th February 2021, priced at £14.99. It will be available from Forbidden Planet, Waterstones, and all good book shops.
